Abstract:This chapter reports on a small-scale empirical study that analyzes the
speaking and writing gains of students enrolled in an introductory Spanish
language course taught in a traditional, face-to-face context and a second,
introductory Spanish language course that was delivered via a hybrid course
format. Both were college-level courses taught by the same instructor. The
overarching research question investigated in this project is the following:
what are the differences in speaking and writing gains of students enrolled
in each of the two types of courses over the course of an academic semester?
Results indicate that there were no statistically significant differences between
students in the traditional and hybrid courses with respect to speaking gains.
However, there were statistically significant differences regarding writing
ability because students in the hybrid course improved more versus students
in the traditional course. Reasons for these differences are delineated and
future areas of research are offered.
